The Economic Policy Research Centre (EPRC) has bid farewell to two AidData Summer Fellows after they successfully finished a two-month fellowship. During their stay, the fellows trained EPRC researchers on the use of ArcGIS software to gather geospatial research information.

The two fellows included Daniel K. Abaogye, who is doing a Masters of Public Policy in International Development Policy at the College of William & Mary, Williamburg, VA. He has previously worked on policy in Washington D.C., performed quantitative and geospatial analysis, and conducted health research in Ghana.

Abaogye believes he will be able to take the skills and knowledge gathered through out the training back home. He pledged a continued working relation with EPRC.

Katherine Whitton is pursuing a Masters of Global Policy Studies at the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas, Austin. She studies the intersection of International Development and Governance, works with Innovations for Peace and Development, and was a Peace Corps Education Volunteer in Ethiopia ('13-'15).

Katherine Whitton expressed happiness working with EPRC professionals and said she was impressed, and excited about the skills she attained.
